Our Alloy Carburizing 8620 Steel Is as Versatile as It Is Tough
Sunbelt Steel carries a huge inventory of specialized alloy steels vetted through our rigorous quality assurance process. Our diverse selection of steel undergoes rigorous testing to ensure you receive only high quality steel.
Alloy 8620 steel is a low-carbon carburizing/case-hardening steel that contains nickel, chromium, and molybdenum as alloying elements. The nickel content provides 8620 with good ductility and toughness while the chromium and molybdenum in its composition increase its hardness penetration and wear. 8620 alloy steel is readily carburized with its balanced alloy content allowing it to produce a core that is tough and strong.
This alloy steel has excellent machinability and responds well to polishing operations. Because it can be developed with a good combination or properties and because it can be processed with such ease, 8620 alloy steel is an ideal material for an array of applications. It is often used in the production of medium strength machine parts, including gears, fasteners, and forged camshafts.
